January 2011 Altered Books Group Meeting

Welcome back to the Honolulu Altered Books Group Blog.
We had a great meeting at Rubber Stamp Plantation this month and as always we thank Deb Z for us letting us use her shop as a meeting place. No wonder her shop was voted the 2010 best place to create art in Honolulu!
We had a great turnout for our January 2011 meeting, as well as some fabulous book layouts.
Please enjoy this month's art. We are looking forward to the upcoming months. Also we are thrilled that some of our mainland members will be here attend some of our meetings in the next few months.

"There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading. the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living, too, and like a river moved on and moved away. No one has stepped twice into the same river. But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?"
